    It appears he may thrive best when he is principal ballhandler. I wonder if he will run the second unit? Considering his height and skill, maybe he would be the best at providing lob passes to Whiteside.....

    Did you see how effective Green was handeling and pushing the ball against us?
    I think it can be a weapon

    I’ve heard Stotts say this as well. We have made enough changes to the roster that Stotts will be forced to experiment. I’d have less hope for guys being given an opportunity if more of the roster remained the same.

    Blazers just announced the signing, but check out Neil’s quote, looks like he learned a new word this year.

    He's wearing 44.

    Clearly he idolizes Drazen Petrovic.

    I think that’s super dope and they should extend him just for that.

    Now the question is, can Neil 'prodigiously bifurcate'?

    Absolutely. Instead of an actual backup PG, we're going with Ant + Mario (MariAnt?).

    Personally, I actually like backup PGs, but we're going with talent.

    Yeah I think the second unit will look something like this.

    Simons
    Hood or Bazemore
    Hezonja
    Skal
    Collins

    Collins pulls double duty as starting PF and backup C, similar to what CJ used to do at SG/PG. Tolliver only plays if Zach is in foul trouble, small ball, or Skal busts. But maybe we still have another signing left and this is premature.

    Agreed, except that the only thing Skal will be busting is "Bust a Move!!".
